The Douglas County region experienced a significant winter storm over December 26-27th. Due to the widespread nature of the storm, depending on location the county experienced rain (over 1 inch in some areas), snow (up to 12 inches), and/or sleet. The combination of wet heavy snow and high winds has resulted in a large number of saplings and downed trees blocking trails. Club members are actively working on clearing these trees but it will likely take several days due to the large quantities of downed trees on the trails.
Where possible, clubs are packing trails with grooming equipment. However, the trail base is very soft at this time. Trail use is not recommended until the area has experienced a cold spell in order for the trail’s bases to freeze flat for the rest of the season.
Please see the map for which trails are currently open.
We will provide updates as more trails are opened or as conditions change.
